WEST PATERSON SCHOOL #4 CLASS OF 1953
Thank you, Angella, for providing our '53 graduation picture (now I don't have to worry about finding my copy of this photo). I easily identified all the gals in the first two rows: FIRST ROW: Marion Douma, Audrey Luciano, Terry Fierro, Donna Cuozzo, Lucille Antonucci, Madeline Bellefatto, Angella Trevisano, Lina Dutches, Dot DeBlock, Marion Rich, Irma Pagnillo, AnnMarie Pagnillo; SECOND ROW: Joan Both, Joyce Brooks, Jill Roselene, Pat Kennedy, (our teachers & principal: Mrs. Spinnler, Mr. Olbon, and Mrs. Gilmore [today school #4 has been renamed Beatrice Gilmore School & the newest school above Mt.Pleasant Ave. is Charles Olbon School; School #1 is no longer a W.P. public school!]), Marilyn DePope, Laura Benvenuti, Mary Ellen Ulrich (she went on to St. Bon's for high school). However, I need help with the two rows of the boys -- LINA????? (since our grad. program is also shown, you should be able to do it for us). Many thanks again to you & Doug!

Thanks again, Lina -- it would have taken me a while; but, with the guys' names printed in the '53 program, I might have succeeded -- I do not recall Al Berghorn & Jim Weite graduating with us! (did they go up to PV with us -- of course, if I could find my yearbook, I could check for their names) -- I do remember Lawrence Zuidema in grammar school, but I don't recall him in PV (ditto for Ed Kammerer)???????? Also, anyone from Totowa out there: I remember Florence Florian and Tommy(?) Florian (a sister & brother) in our class when we started PV (did they finish PV with us? I don't recall their names in the yearbook) -- again, thanks, guys, for your assistance with my shortcircuited memory.

I believe Ed Kammerer moved to Lincoln Park. Larry started PV with us but I believe he also moved. Al and Jim both started PV and I think they both quit. The Florians did not graduate PV with us.
